Hey everybody! I need some serious help. I am 5 '4, and weigh 160 pounds. I try to get into excersizing, but I can't stick with it. I know I need to lose weight, but I can't seem to control my eating habits. My waist size is 31, but even they're too tight. I really need help. Can ANYBODY help me?

What you may need is a partner or a group of friends that you exercise with. They'll keep you motivated to keep on exercising and eating right. Have them come over a lot to keep you busy and away from the refrigerator! One good tip is to drink tons of ice water. Remember, GOD LOVES YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know EXACTLY how you feel! I'm the same weight and I'm 3" shorter than you! The best thing you can do is to 1. except it (say to youself "I bigger than I want to be" Iknow it sounds mean, but only you know it's true) 2. Change it. I know you said you can't stick to excercise, well try alternatives. Do you like to dance, ski, or swim? All of these are great ways of excercising with having fun! And if you don't think you can keep this up, ask for lessons, then you KNOW you'll
get the excercise you need!
